Carolina Craft Day
Saturday, September 28, 2013
11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The North Carolina Arboretum celebrates Southern Appalachian traditions during Carolina Craft Day. The event, now in its eighth year, features craft demonstrations and juried art and craft vendors and plant sales at the Education Center.
Western North Carolina is known worldwide for its botanical beauty and diversity, as well as for the many wonderful handmade crafts and works of art that are influenced by the mountain way of life. Vitally important to the region’s craft heritage is the close relationship between crafts and the plants used in their production. Much of the fiber, color and artistic expression of mountain craft arises from the character and nature of plants.
Admission to Carolina Craft Day is free for members or with the parking fee of $8 per personal vehicle. For more information, call 828.665.2492
